Pumpkin Cookies V

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I took this exact recipe and put it into a 9x13 cake pan. I served it with "Pumpkin Bar Icing" from allrecipes.com (where I used Maple extract instead of Vanilla extract) for my Dad's birthday party. It was like the cake version of a Maple bar. This amazingly seasonal flavor combination was heavenly perfection!

Yummy Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
This is a very good base recipie. Was missing a little bit of salt and heat, in my opinion. But I can take care of that next time. I will definitely be making this again. LOVE the bacon and nutmeg.

Spicy Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
Our houseguests enjoyed and complimented the chili. However, I am a bit of a self-proclaimed chili connoisseur and I had to "doctor" the recipe quite a bit in order to highlight the flavors. I made my own pumpkin puree from fresh pumpkin. The pumpkin didn't seem to add much uniqueness to the chili; it actually made it a bit bland. I will try this recipe one more time with a few more tricks to see if I can get more of a pumpkin/fall flavor out of it. I like the concept of Pumpkin Chili anyway, so I'm not giving up yet!

Pumpkin Bar Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
I used Maple extract instead of Vanilla extract, and poured it over the "Pumpkin Cookies V" (which I actually made into a 9x13 cake) recipe on allrecipes.com, and served it for my Dad's birthday cake. It was like the cake version of a Maple bar. This amazingly seasonal flavor combination was heavenly perfection!

Hearty Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
Just pre-made this for the boys for a big football weekend. I actually became annoyed at one point with the repeated compliments. I thought they were trying to be funny by being over-the-top. Turns out they were completely sincere. WINNER!!!

Wazzu Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
Spectacular. I consider myself an amateur chili connoisseur as I have made many chilis and am quite particular about not only flavor, but texture as well. This chili nails both! I cooked it in a crock pot for 24+ hours though, so that the meat really soaked up the flavors and spices. This will be my signature chili for now; until I find a better one...

Slow Cooker Chile Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
Colors and flavorings are amazing; added a few ingredients for heartiness like chopped green chilis, chopped green jalepeno, friholes negros, corn, cumin, and lime juice for a bright, refereshing soup or topping for any other entre. This recipe will be a staple in my regular repertoire.

Roasted Turkey, Navy Style

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
My husband followed this recipe when we hosted Thanksgiving last year and everyone raved. This recipe is very healthy yet flavorful. We (he) will be doing this one again this year.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
It was OK. Not the best I've ever had. I've had fresh, organic pumpkin soup from a very reputable gourmet food company and it was literally "to die for". I couldn't keep my husband and his friend from hogging it all. This recipe did not hold a flame to that. My husband and his same friend had zero interest in this soup. I will keep looking for a pumpkin soup that will get me closer to heaven.

Bountiful Garden Zucchini Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Amazing. The gourmet cheese sauce pretty much makes the dish. I will make this again and again.

Blue Cheese, Spinach Meat Loaf Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
A sophisticated twist on classic meatloaf. Great flavors, great presentation on the plate, and although it doesn't taste like traditional meatloaf; it still has that great, soft and smooth consistency. All of my guests always love it!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Had to add more paste. But I just get a generic brand so it may be more bland than some. Other than that: fantastic.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2013
Excellent. I have tried several Tortilla Soup recipes, and this one was by far the best. I will be including this recipe in my regular line up from now on.

Thai Curry Soup

A healthy recipe, but too watery. It tasted fine and would be okay if in a hurry.

Granny's Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
We went for a low-carb Thanksgiving this last year. This was one of several dishes used to replace the traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc. The family was absolutely amazed at how satisfying this wonderfully savory (and healthy) dish was. I blinked at it was gone. Have made it several times since, with the same results.
